ABSTRACT
The article reports on whether the Writers Guild of America (WGA) will accept the same deal points on media compensation that the Directors Guild of America agreed with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). WGA, who have been on strike since November 5, 2007, broke off talks with AMPTP because of deadlocks over residuals and compensation for content that is used on new media platforms, such as the Internet and cell phones.
